Without all of our special coders, where would we be? We sure wouldn’t have all of these cool gadgets and video games, would we? Coders create apps, computer software, video games, websites, and all of that exciting stuff. The browser you’re using right now, those apps you have, your operating system and this website …those were all made with code. If coders went extinct (I hope this never happens), then we’d be lost. For this reason, it is important that we inspire our little ones to learn code. Of course, if you find they’re just not interested in coding, then you shouldn’t push it on them. However, there are some that will really attach to it and grow up wanting to be a coder. If you would like to know whether or not you’re growing a little coder of your own, there are different types of toys available that you can buy them. One of those toys is called Future Coders Robot Racers and it comes to us from Alex Brands.
About Alex Brands
Before I go into details about Future Coders Robot Races, I first want to introduce you to Alex Brands, so that you know what type of company you’re dealing with. Alex Brands isn’t a company that is new to the market – they have been around since 1986 and are well known for their crafts kits and their art supplies for children. Over the past five years, they have expanded and have made crafts even more exciting. They create merchandise for children of all ages from toddlers to tweens. This is a company that inspires children to be able to express their creativity.
About Future Coders Robot Races
Basically, this is a game that will transform your child into a “robot” (not really) and challenge them to race to that finish line. This is a “get up and move around” coding game where your child will need to race in order to solve each challenge that pops up.
What Does the Future Coders Robot Races Do?
It’s great for teaching early coding logic. It asks children to map their own path from point A to point B. As you race to the last square, you place direction tiles on the mat.
Future Coders Robot Races includes the following:
30 Direction Tiles
20 Level Cards
What Age is Appropriate?
Future Coders Robot Races is recommended for children 4 years old and up.
If you want to try to get your little one into coding, then the Future Coders Robot Races would be a great way to start out. Who knows, you could end up shaping your child for their future and finding something they would love to be at an early age. Regardless, this “toy” is highly recommended for children ages 4 and up.
